I was surprised by how well they knew how to divide the words by the syllable, but didn't know any syllable division rules in order to divide them. We are using All About Spelling Level 5, and I was happy to find that Syllable Division Rules was in the review before starting Step 1.
I first read them the rules aloud. They then took the paper from me, because they are visual learners and had to read it themselves. After that I read some words as instructed in the Teacher Manual that they spelled using The Movable Alphabet.
